What I liked about the LX was: It's size, smaller than the K1000, bigger than the MX
The fact it had interchangable viewfinders
It was black
what I didn't like: It had sticky mirror syndrome
It had a tear in it's shutter curtain
NOBODY in SA wanted to/could repair it
returned it for a full refund, missed it, learned to cope with the K1000 and MX, still secretly want one but I do not need it.
